The US is interested in helping Armenia and Azerbaijan to find a path forward in the process of settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, US Secretary of State John Kerry said during his meeting with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov on the sidelines of the American Jewish Committee Global Forum, State Department’s official website informs.
“Nagorno -Karabakh is a frozen conflict, as we call it, one that threatens the stability of the region and one that we need to deal with,” Secretary Kerry said.
“As co-chair of the Minsk Group, we have a serious interest in helping Azerbaijan and Armenia to be able to find a path forward. The last thing we want is a return to war and to conflict. I believe there is a path forward, and we will continue to work quietly and patiently in an effort to try to encourage the parties to be able to take either confidence-building measures that may get to further down the road or to find a way towards a settlement with respect to this issue,” John Kerry said.
